$83,000 to promote seatbelt safety

Sara’s Wish Foundation recently received an $83,000 federal grant to work with coach lines, including Peter Pan and Greyhound in New England, to promote seat belt usage on their buses. The Daily Hampshire Gazette reported the project will be in conjunction with the University of Massachusetts Transportation Center.

The Amherst organization is part of a nationwide effort to eliminate fatalities on American roads by 2050. The Safe System Innovation Grant comes from the Road to Zero Coalition, a joint effort of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the National Safety Council.
